We have many people that play integral role in moving Yoga Moves Us into the lives of more people who can benefit from our services.
I have been practicing yoga for 7 years and have decided that I will be a lifelong yogi! Yoga has brought me peace, and an open heart and mind. The yoga community in Sacramento is so amazing and I have met so many wonderful friends through this practice. My first yoga class in Sacramento was at Yoga In The Park. I fell in love with the practice and the community and I have been practicing yoga at McKinley Park ever since. I enjoy volunteering for Yoga Moves Us, so that I can give back to this organization that has given so much to me. In my free time, I also enjoy hiking, camping, dancing, traveling, meditation, and volunteering for the Sierra Club.
I came to my yoga practice about 6 years ago after suffering a traumatic brain injury. A friend suggested that I try yoga and took me to my first class at McKinley Park. After a few months of classes in the park, I noticed my mind and body getting stronger. If I were to have to rebuild my life and my identity, yoga was an awesome tool and teacher. After 6 years of Yoga in the Park, and studio classes around town, I have developed a deep love for my practice and my Yoga in the Park experiences. Additionally, the park is very special to me. In college, 5 of us shared a house across the street. My husband and I were engaged there, we took our babies to play there, and now I practice yoga there with the incredible Yoga Moves Us community.
Tami discovered yoga three years ago while living in San Diego. She started out yoga as a part of her personal training workout but she found that yoga is more than just a physical workout. Not only her daily practices has made her stronger, more flexible and fearless both on and off the mat, yoga also transformed her life by creating personal balance and freedom which has led her to discover herself. She is hungry for more knowledge and experience in yoga which is why she’s so excited to help Yoga Moves Us. Tami’s goal is to help and support people with kindness and love through the expression of yoga, art and dance. She wishes to achieve her goal by giving back to the community.
Kristle is a relatively newer yogi, starting her practice in 2015. She was initially hesitant to try yoga because she thought it wouldn’t be challenging enough. Little did she know she would leave classes challenged both physically and mentally. As a new mother, Kristle joined Yoga Moves Us at McKinley Park as a way to hit the reset button and to focus on becoming a better person in order to take care of her family. Volunteering with Yoga Moves Us is a way to give back to the community that provides so much to her.
